    Good for you, MT! My goldfish love to swim around and be visible. Koi are all hiding in the shelving "caves". I've seen as many as 5 of them at a time, but until the water warms up, I don't worry about them. They are happy hiding and hibernating, so I'm happy for them!

    I hope the snows over! All the snow was gone in our yard and then a couple of days ago it snowed a couple inches.:( If it would warm up again it would be gone.
    Colleen the snow in that picture I took January 5th. And I did get the rest of that snow shoveled off the deck:). And Lou your right sore back and also arms.

    Cold with a mix of mostly ice and light snow falling. Untreated streets are like ice rinks. Others slippery slush. Suppose to continue through tomorrow. This is when living atop a hill has its disadvantages. Cathy's cooking homemade chili.

    Chili was delicious. Now after taking my cough syrup and using my nose spray I'll be out like a light in about 20 minutes. Stay warm everyone.

    Got my pond up and running last night:). Water is pretty green so started my UV this afternoon. In a day or two water should be crystal clear again!
